The Ocean Container has a “soundtrack”: pieces of music alluded to, referenced by title, or quoted — in the case of lyrics reprinted with permission of Nick Currie (aka Momus) and Mark Burgess (for The Chameleons).  Here is an almost complete track list, in order of appearance in the novel:

“I was a Maoist Intellectual” by Momus

“I Want Your Love” by Chic

“Thirty Frames a Second” by Simple Minds

“The Day the Sun Burned Down” by The Escalators

“Second Skin” by The Chameleons

“Taking Tiger Mountain” by Brian Eno

“Come Out” by Steve Reich

“Greif Nach Den Sternen” by DAF

“Maple Leaf Rag” by Scott Joplin

“Minute Waltz” (Waltz in D-flat major, Op. 64, No. 1) by Frederic Chopin
